Awesome experience
Production / Operations (Former Employee), Kingsport TnMay 22, 2014
Pros: great people, clean environment, process driven facility with unlimited potential
Cons: corporate meddled around a little too much for my taste.
Spent three years there in working in production. Wasn't easy at first but the changes implemented went a long way. Great staff there and very loyal workforce that desires to do the right thing. Long hours was only because of the rate of growth we were experiencing which is a great thing as it ensures Kingsport stays on the map. Made life long friends working there and the senior leadership team was top notch.

Was once an leader in the packaging industry
Technical (Former Employee), Cumberland, RIJanuary 16, 2013
Pros: was a great place to craft my abilities.
Cons: misguided management.
This company has lost track of it's simple goal of being profitable. To much focus was on saving money instead of making money. I was able to excell when not micro managed. Seasoned employees should be relied upon. Their experience is your sucess. The hardest part my my job was the person I reported to and eventually our division's collapase. The most enjoyable part of my job was my work family which I miss very much.
